WE ARE FRIDAY WARRIORS
The tag “Friday Warriors” was given to the group because our volunteers served the community every Friday and dedicated their time every weekend, which is a heavy sacrifice when you are an expat and only have that one weekend to rest and spend time for yourself or with family.
I volunteered my weekends to share and teach my love for photography. For 10 years, i devoted my time to hundreds of fellow pinoys in Dubai hoping to inspire them to create beautiful images.
The group was formed by professional photographers working in Dubai – mostly photojournalists and commercial photographers. We would teach every weekend, for 3 months, 3 times a year – catering exclusively to Filipinos based in Dubai. Each season catered to about 150 students and classes included lectures, workshops and outdoor activities.
We can proudly say that we have helped produce some of the best working photographers in the industry today.
